My Story



    Hi and welcome to the Soles of Whistler website!

    I was born in Australia moved here in my early 20's to spend just a season in Whistler and like most Australians struggled to leave. I fell in love with this place and the lifestyle and not long after decided this was going to be the place I now call home.

    My love and passion for shoes started when I was 16 working in a fashion shoe store in Australia and then I transferred to Footlocker shortly after. By the age of 18 I was managing their stores throughout Sydney, Bondi and Pitt st to name a few. I was able to transfer to Canada to work in the Footlocker store in Whistler Village 7 years later. In total I worked for Footlocker for 14 years. Here I gained the confidence that I could open my own store and fulfill a gap as there was no Fashion Footwear store in Whistler.
    I learned so much with this company and I'm forever grateful for the time spent there.

    I opened Soles February 2013 in the Westin Hotel in Whistler. Originally I thought the store was going to be primarily work based footwear but since those days the buy has changed and  my main focus has been to find fun fashionable footwear that is comfortable and timeless. Soles of Whistler is here to stay. Hope you like the product we have chosen to carry and I hope to see you in store soon.

    Thanks for popping by!
